Charmides Flower Field

Charmides Flower Field, 2009, model for cast acrylic rod and underground LED array installation proposal

I recently built a model for a public art commission proposal at a hospital, requiring an approach sensitive to health, mental well-being and balance. The clear cast acrylic coloured rods of this sculpture will glow in daylight, reflecting onto the surrounding four walls of glass, moving across a spectrum of colour, revealing at its base, a flower. At night from an underground brilliant white LED array, each rod will light individually, forming a gently shifting and swaying field of vibrantly coloured, glowing rods. The model above represents a work which would stand about 1 – 1.5 meters high and 8 meters long, and reside in a sealed glass enclosed courtyard (paradise: an enclosed space looking to heaven) .
